U. S. Embassy school visit

Yesterday our school had a visit from the U. S. Embassy in Ljubljana. Their first visit to our school was made by Bilateral Affairs Officer Major Perry Read. After the Principal's welcoming reception, Mr Perry visited a classroom with about 90 students to talk about different topics upon their request. The students were interested in racism, gun control, genetically modified food, and asked hundreds of questions on the topics. BAO Perry Read received a very loud and long applause at the end of more than an hour long conversation with the students. This was a second U. S. Embassy visit for me as a teacher and I found them both very engaging and beneficial for the students. If you have a chance to invite a representative from an English speeking Embassy in your country, I definitely recommend it!
